Updated: May 26, 2021

BEAM President Peter Lockyer and Committee member Clare Daly encouraged Council to be “bold and ambitious” in addressing our climate future.

We have just 10 years to keep Global Warming below 1.5 degrees. Current local plans of zero emissions by 2050 will fall far short of this.


We acted on the fires.
We are acting on Covid-19.
We must act on the Climate Emergency!
